"I love these cookies but I really wanted to try to make them a little lighter. I actually used sweet potato puree for some of the butter and juice squeezed from an orange for some of the sugar and they still taste great. It sounds a little odd but try it!!"

Loved it-- different texture, but very flavorful! I used butternut squash instead of sweet potato !

Awesome recipe, though I add one more teaspoon of vanilla and use dark brown sugar. If you like to make larger cookies as I do, this makes something closer to three instead of four dozen.
